    NGINX App Protect application security solution combines the efficacy of advanced F5 web application firewall (WAF) technology with the agility and performance of NGINX Plus. The solution runs natively on NGINX Plus and addresses some of the most difficult challenges facing modern DevOps environments:

    • High‑confidence signatures for extremely low false positives
    • Increases visibility, integrating with third‑party analytics solutions
    • Integrates security and WAF natively into the CI/CD pipeline
    • Deploys as a lightweight software package that is agnostic of underlying infrastructure
    • Facilitates declarative policies for “security as code” and integration with DevOps tools
    • Decreases developer burden and provides feedback loop for quick security remediation
    • Accelerates time to market and reduces costs with DevSecOps‑automated security
